I don’t know who has been handling Mary J Blige’s money over the years but clearly they didn’t know what they were doing because she has found herself in yet another deep financial hole with Uncle Sam. She was just hit with a $3.4 million tax lien from everybody’s least favorite Uncle Sam. Details inside
The IRS filed a federal tax lien against the Grammy winner, claiming she failed to pay all her income taxes for the years 2009 ($574,907.30), 2010 ($2,203,743.53) and 2011 ($647,604.60). Tax bill grand total: $3,426,255.43
To make matters worse this is just the latest on Mary’s long list of financial issues. She also owes $900,000 to New Jersey in back taxes and she is being sued for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan. Mary’s charity is also facing a lawsuit for not paying back a $250,000 loan.
Sheeesh! I hope Mary has enough money for an awesome lawyer and some left over to start paying these debts because you see what happened to Lauryn Hill. Uncle Sam doesn’t care about how many fans or hits you have..the government just wants their money and could care less about sending you to jail.
